Tryon Park is a tranquil, established subdivision located off Highway 70 on the eastern end of Havelock. Food Lion, Havelock Cinema 6, banks, service stations, restaurants and churches are within walking distance. The front gate of MCAS Cherry Point is less than three miles away. Atlantic Beach is approximately 25 minutes to the east and New Bern is approximately 30 minutes to the west.
A sign in front of the air station reads, “Pardon our noise, it’s the sound of freedom.” Air traffic noise is par for the course when you live next to an air base, but Tryon Park holds the distinction of having the lowest sound levels inside the city limits. Most of the single family homes are of brick construction and have large lots with mature landscaping. Pride of home ownership is evident in the well-maintained homes and yards. Tryon Park is close by and quiet—a perfect retreat at the end of the work day.
Carteret Craven Electric Membership Corporation provides power to the neighborhood. Water, sewer and trash service and fire and police protection are provided by the City of Havelock. School attendance is at Graham A. Barden Elementary, Havelock Middle School, and Havelock High School.
